For the Gaudi La Coma Artists’ Residence competition, participants are asked to submit designs for a sustainable artists’ residence and education complex called “La Coma”. It will be located in Huesca, Spain and would need to follow Antoni Gaudi’s design values and principles of sustainability, functionality, aesthetics, and innovation. At this stage, participants should focus on defining a clear, coherent and harmonized set of building volumetrics, demonstrating how new structures would fit within the site and correspond between each other, as well as defining the general architectural guidelines for the future development of the building complex.
